Restore Us
August 25, 2021

Read: Psalm 80:4-19

Restore us, O God of hosts; let your face shine, that we may be saved! (v. 7)

The psalmist is longing for the restoration of God’s people to a strong spiritual condition. His desire grows in intensity. In verse 3 he says, “Restore us, O God.” In verse 7, “Restore us, O God of hosts.” And in verse 19, “Restore us, O LORD God of hosts.” He also prays, “Give us life” (v. 18).

What is the condition in our churches today? That varies. But in the United States there is a great deal of lukewarmness, of “business as usual.” In most parts of the church in the United States there is no outpouring of wholehearted prayer for a great revival. Most believers seem to be much more interested in enjoying their luxuries.

I pray every day for a great revival, a great work of the Holy Spirit throughout the church, for purer doctrine and life, for more love within each congregation, for a greater enthusiasm in spreading the wonderful gospel of Jesus Christ.

If all who read this page today would join in praying every day for a great revival, surely God would hear and answer such prayer. Commit yourself to doing just that and great things will happen in your church. Then it will make a great impact on the spiritual and moral tone of our nation and the world. —Harry Buis

As you pray, pray for revival for yourself, your church, and for all believers.
